    That is probably your issue. Blackra1n may be loading a old cydia which is giving you issues. Try using redsn0w 0.9.4 to jailbreak instead if you want to stay on 3.1.2. Or you can go to 4.1 and jailbreak with greenpoison or limera1n. If you require unlock then you can use sn0wbreeze or pwnage tool to go to 4.1 and preserve your baseband so that you can stay unlocked.

    If you dont require unlock just update to 4.1 and use one of the new tools limera1n/greenpoison/redsn0w 0.9.6b2

    A new unlock should be out this month so you should be fine if you want to unlock in the future.

    Thank you SO much. I sold my old phone and advertised it as having 3.1.2 unlocked and jailbroken. Went to wipe my data and re-JB and spent ALL last night trying different methods (pwnagetool/sn0wbreeze/blackra1n) until coming across this thread. Worked on the first try with redsn0w 0.9.4!
